D of E Expedition Assesment

Today and yesterday I was out with the Kinlochleven High School Bronze Award group for their over night expedition. The two groups set off from Corriechoille and walked up to the Lairig Leacach Bothy. The two groups were given tasks to complete, one to identify the flora they see (plenty to keep them busy) and the other group had to record moral levels as they went along! From the bothy we walked near to Meannanach bothy and set up our campsites in the area. There was a good breeze most of the day and night, however when it did stop the kids decided it was tent time. So after a good nights sleep, heavy rain, 1 collapsed tent and some even wetter socks left out to dry, the groups headed off towards Glen Nevis for their final day. We started off with light drizzle which cleared up later in the day. Everyone got to the Upper Falls car park in one piece and passed the expedition part of the award.
